We provide an extensive range of press-in, molded-in, and ultrasonic/heat staking inserts. Determining the most suitable threaded insert for your specific application is crucial. Through a comprehensive analysis of the diverse threaded insert options, along with a thorough understanding of the application requirements and materials involved, we aim to assist you in finding the optimal solution for your needs.
Types of Threaded Inserts
Hexagonal Inserts: Hexagonal inserts, available in both aluminum and stainless steel, are press-fitted without the need for heat or ultrasonics. Their hexagonal “barbed” configuration ensures robust, reusable threads, promoting high torque-out and pullout values.
Blind Threaded Inserts: Crafted in stainless steel, brass, and aluminum, blind threaded inserts feature a blinded end, safeguarding threads from plastic intrusion.
Self-locking Blind Threaded: Stainless steel inserts with deformed threads, the IBLC type ensures screw locking and vibration resistance. The blind end protects against plastic intrusion.
Thru-threaded Inserts: Featuring a pilot diameter and undercuts for plastic flow, thru-threaded inserts provide substantial pullout resistance. These inserts are available in aluminum and brass.
Knurled Spacers: Thru-threaded and knurled spacers in aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. With a uniform knurl diameter, they minimize sink marks and offer various lengths for injection molding assemblies.
Tapered Inserts: Tapered, thru-threaded inserts in aluminum, brass, and stainless steel are tailored for tapered holes. The tapered mounting hole allows swift and precise alignment before installation.
Flanged Inserts: Flange-head inserts, available in aluminum and brass, are press-fitted with reusable threads. Cold pressed, they do not require heat or ultrasonics for installation. The flange head prevents direct plastic contact with mating parts, and the slotted insert compresses for access into the mounting hole.
Straight Wall Inserts: Designed for straight holes, these thru-threaded inserts, available in aluminum, brass, and stainless steel, feature a self-aligning lead-in for accurate alignment before installation.
